Mid-May. As a Sox fan, I'm disappointed you had to ask.

last update i saw was on Sportsline on Saturday the 6th
Boston center fielder Coco Crisp, sidelined since April 8 with a finger injury, hopes to play in about 10 days. Crisp, who replaced Johnny Damon after he signed with the New York Yankees, said Friday night he'll probably have a rehabilitation assignment in the minors before playing for the Red Sox. Crisp had X-rays Thursday on his left index finger, which was fractured at its base when he slid into third base in a game against Baltimore. The leadoff hitter is batting .333 with six runs, no RBI and two stolen bases. (Updated 05/06/2006).
FANTASY ANALYSIS "I'm getting happy, I guess," he said after Boston's 6-3 win over the Orioles on Friday night. "It's getting nearer." He said he hopes to start swinging a bat in three or four days, and do that for a week before playing in a game. He's already been throwing barehanded with his left hand, which had tape on the finger Friday. "I talked to Coco about it. The range of motion is much improved," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said before the game. The team is going to let Crisp have a lot of input into when he returns. "They said that they're going to trust how I feel," he said. Wily Mo Pena and Dustan Mohr will continue to share the duties in center field in Crisp's absence.
I want him to take as much time as he needs to get back to 100%. Look how good we've done without him. Just think how much better that offense can be with him as the catalyst. I can't wait. Of course, I don't have him on any of my fantasy teams...
this rotoworld blurb makes me wonder if there's something else going on.
Coco Crisp (finger) will not go with the Red Sox to Baltimore for their road trip. "He's coming along slowly," Crisp said. "He'll stay back and try to get his legs under him. It's going to take him a little while to get back on his feet." Crisp has not yet been cleared to swing a bat. May. 15 - 9:35 am et
why would his legs not be under him? has he not been able to run? or is this a figure of speech?
